My System Specs

Default Core i5 655K overclocking!

Holy crap can this thing overclock. Right now I have it at 4.6ghz!!! That is on air with only a mediocre cooler...NCIX.com - Buy Noctua NH-U9B SE2 LGA775/1156/1366 AM2/AM3 I7/I5/PHENOM Heatpipe Cooler W/ 2XNF-B9 92MM Fans - NH-U9B SE2 In Canada.

It gets hot so I am thinking of getting a better cooler but don't have much space inside the small case. ?????????? Lian Li Industrial Co., Ltd.

Just wondering what overclocks are you guys achieving? Mine could go higher but heat is keeping me back.

I've heard some amazing stories on those little K series processors. Even before they were released. Very nice overclocks.

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.
